Would a 60 amp in-line fuse be fine for an amplifier's 50 amp fuse rating?

I've heard before that you should try to match the in-line fuse rating with the fuse rating on the amplifier. Would a 60 amp fuse be fine for a 50 amp amplifier? And if it is possible to go a little more or less than the fuse rating on an amplifier, how much more or less is safe?

Best Answer:

PelzartigTod: The size of WIRE and the amount of power that the device pulls determines the size of the fuse that should protect the wiring and the device. Never supply a circuit with a larger fuse than the wiring will support. Never use wiring that is smaller in size than that the device requires. The fuse is a low-cost protection device designed to be the first point of failure, to prevent a fire or cause other problems with the vehicle or the device.

Therefore, use the proper size 50 amp for a 50 amp device.

No it is not okay to use a 5 instead of a 3 amp fuse. First you must locate and remove the short. If a 5 amp fuse works it could cause overheating of the appliance and/or wiring and/or plugs-socket. The 3 amp fuse is 3 amp for a reason, the fault must be found, either in the wiring or an appliance plugged into the wiring. If you have too many appliances plugged into the 3amp circuit then unplug them and locate another separately fused circuit for some of them to run on.

NO, absolutely not. Install exactly the fuse that the manufacture of the amp recommends and nothing else. Otherwise you may have a fire.

Not if you wish the risk of blowing your amp. Fuses are cheap, get the one which your amp calls for.
